    Well you gotta impress 'em with something if you can't do harmonies.

    Just read about the new allegations against Cain. Why is it always the (would-be) politicians people go after? They don't seem to be the most powerful people around anymore.

    Someone should initiate a good smear campaign against Standard & Poor's.

    SuperWatto,

    It's not the people going after Cain, it's the media.

    I just read a really funny (in a sick sort of way) article/column in the SF Chronicle on 21 festive uses for pepper spray. Since I don't know how to post links, you can read it for yourself at sfgate.com.

    Hysterically funny! Suggested uses include spraying congress, your honey-baked ham, your pets, toddlers, hippie bike riders, etc. It's a scream!

    Nobody is spared. Nobody.

    Watto, corporations are insulated from most media criticism through the simple mechanism of paid advertising, what a friend of mine used to call "capitalist realist art," but also because all the big media companies share interlocking boards of directors with all the rest of the Fortune 500. What most people think of as hawking wares is also a more generalized incessant cheerleading for consumerism. It takes a Canon or Enron level of crime and corruption to bring real condemnation down on a publicly owned company. Merely screwing everybody isn't enough.

    You're right. Okay, scratch that: let's petition for them to be branded a terrorist organization.
